  1. This sauce is beyond! I used it with grilled salmon fillets, sauted shrimp and also simply spooned over some white rice. I’m roasting some Brussel sprouts along with dinner tonight and plan on basting the sprouts with this sauce, as well. Hell, this sauce would be good on shoe leather, lol!

      We’re so glad to hear you love the sauce so much! Thank you for the wonderful feedback!!

  2. FIVE STARS! This is excellent stuff. I smoked chicken wings on my Traeger before coating the wings in this sauce. My 22 year-old son and his buddies gobbled them up. I used the remaining sauce a couple days later with some boneless chicken thighs and served with rice and broccoli. My husband loved it so much that we’re having it again for dinner tonight.

  3. Loved this sauce! Went so well with our fried chicken. It definitely fulfilled my craving. Also I’m so glad I stumbled upon your website as I am a total sauce person! Can’t wait to try your other recipes.

  4. Haven’t made it yet, but if it’s as good as one girl said, which was, “Awesome!” You should bottle it and call it, “AWESOME SAUCE!”

  5. Excellent sauce! My husband loves it on pork tenderloin. I use your recipe often. Thanks!

  6. Really good added extra lime

  7. This is an awesome sauce! I used it glaze grilled brussel sprouts, before grilling it again slightly. Even the veggie haters took second serving.
